Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah claimed on Friday that no internal or external agency was involved in the security breach at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) that led to the audio leak. A media report said the investigation is pointing to individuals who may be involved in hacking and leaking private conversations in the PMO.
The minister’s statement comes hours after another video clip went viral on social media, before a third audio video of former prime minister Imran Khan emerged. Don said this audio is focused on buying five and the numbers game. The minister said that it has been decided that cyber security protocols will be defined at a high level and any equipment needed for security will be provided.
He further said-However, I am clearly stating that there is no hostile or internal agency involved in this. Nowadays, technology has advanced so much that hacking a phone call is no longer a difficult task. Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the minister said that the investigation into the security breach at the PMO has reached its conclusion, it will be decided later whether its report will be made public.
Sanaullah said that a comprehensive report is being submitted to the Prime Minister and the recommendations in the report will be implemented as soon as the Prime Minister issues instructions in this regard. People often indulge in such activities for money. But I totally deny that any agency is involved in PMO security breach.
